Carley Moore with Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore
Carley Moore joins us this afternoon to read from The Not Wives (Feminist Press) a novel of sex-positive awakening and burgeoning political resistance, set in Occupy-era New York City. “The Not Wives is gritty, sexy, very queer, literary social realism that's up-all-night compelling—just what I want from a novel set in NYC in the time of Occupy, with its sprawling cast of adjuncts, bartenders, poets, single parents, little kids, homeless teenagers, and serious organizers embroiled in various romantic and economic complications. When we say report back, this is what we mean!” —Andrea Lawlor.
Carley Moore is an essayist, novelist, and poet whose previous books include 16 Pills (Tinderbox Editions) and The Stalker Chronicles (Farrar, Straus, & Giroux). Carley Moore also appears in conversation with Seattle writer Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, author most recently of Sketchtasy (Arsenal Pulp) and of The Freezer Door, to be published in 2020 by Semiotext(e).
